Hey there,

I haven’t purchased this dress yet but i’m going to and I too have pondered the same question as you pertaining as to whether to get diamond white or alabaster.

According to my online research, there are plenty of good images out there, mostly on the weddingbee site so just search “Maggie Sottero Kendra” and read through all the postings and pics to get a sense of what color looks lke what.

In my opinion, the alabaster is probably quite yellowish/tan-ivory and would probably only work on someone who is super pale (and not planning on tanning prior to the wedding) or someone who is not wanting a “white dress” look.  

I talked to a sales consultant yesterday and she said that the dress comes in white, diamond white, alabaster and pearl.  The white is stark bright bridal white, while the diamond white is more of a softer ivory white.  I told her that I did NOT want super bright white and she said the diamond white would be best then.

Let me know what  you think/what happens!

While I did not purchase Kendra I did try it on in several colors.

I don’t have photos of all the dresses on me in the various colors but I do have examples of the alabaster versus diamond white. In my personal opinion the diamond white was still VERY white (too white for my taste). The alabaster is more of an ivory and unlike what the PP mentioned it looked better on my darker complexion than the diamond white (too stark).

not my dress, but I tried it on in alabaster and thought it looked really dull and gross in pictures. I’d go for diamond white but it’s really personal preference.

One of my BM’s wore the Maggie dress ‘Jenna’ for her wedding in diamond white and it looked beautiful!  Maggie’s diamond white is a soft white which in my opinion is the perfect shade and compliments a lot of different skin tones.  I’m sorry if I offend anyone but that alabaster color looks like an ivory/champagne … yuck.  My vote is deff for the diamond white!

@MrsWBS:  I’m pretty sure there is a more tactful and nice way of saying your opinion. As someone who had an alabaster dress I certainly don’t think it is “dull and gross.”

I looked at the alabaster, pearl, white and diamond white today.  

The pearl looked almost coppery-pink.

The alabaster was ivory/yellowish

The white was bright typical bridal white

The diamond white was soft white/ivory

It’s amazing what different lighting does.  The pics online don’t really do the colors justice.  I would try to find a boutique that carries Maggie Sottero so you can see many dresses that come in these colors if you’re curious about what they look like in person.
